The graceful curves of this sleeveless top come from its simple, yet innovative construction. Knit in two identical pieces from the bottom edge to the neck, right twist ribbings jazz up the bottom, neck, and armholes. You’ll seam the sides and overlap the pieces at the neck to create subtle draping at the neck and geometric interest at the shoulders for a top you’ll want to wear everywhere.
